Specsavers Eye Test and Frames Review
Zara did my pre-test. She was very friendly, smiley and explained what was going to happen. The pre-test consisted of me looking into a machine at an image of a hot air ballon which moved in and out of focus. This was done on both eyes.
I then moved onto another machine which Zara explained would look at the health of my eyes. I needed to look at the green dot and then there would be a bright flash.
I then went back to the waiting room to wait to be called by the optometrist. Zara walked past and let me know that the optometrist was free and would call me soon. I liked that she kept me updated and didn’t just leave me waiting.
The optometrist, Emma, showed me into a private room and asked me a number of questions about my eye sight and health before carrying out a number of tests and again looking to see what my eye health was like.
I was quite fascinated by the pictures of my eyes and couldn’t resist taking a picture to show my husband! I’ve never seen anything like it before!
After my eye test a man named Ben showed me back downstairs to find a pair of frames I liked. I opted for a pair of Red or Dead 48 glasses which cost £99. Emma recommended having anti-glare (£30) too as I wear my glasses to drive.
I was then shown to a waiting room where, Conor, measured my eyes for the frames. He then advised that he’d check with the lab to see if they had the lenses in stock and then confirmed that they did and that my glasses would be ready to pick up from 4pm the same day!
I was amazed and was very impressed to hear that they’d be ready the same day! Usually I have to wait a good week or two before they’re ready for collection from my usual opticians. I returned to the store once I’d finished work and picked up my new frames.
I absolutely love them! They’re super comfortable and I can see really well through them!
I love the purple and pink design on the arms, along with the Red or Dead logo. They feel sturdy and very good quality.
Overall, I was really impressed with the service I received from Specsavers. Every member of staff I spoke to was very helpful and friendly. I received excellent service and I would definitely return for my next eye test! Thanks Specsavers!
For the purpose of this review I was given a complimentary eye test and frames of my choice. All views and opinions are 100% my own.
